International students coming from China should work through the Cambridge Institute to apply to Brunswick Academy. We have partnered with Cambridge to help Chinese students work through the admissions process and to be placed properly.

Step 1 – The Online Application

The online application is the gateway to our Admissions Process. The application can be accessed by clicking the following link: Brunswick Academy admission application. A current photograph of your child is requested to help the Admission Committee put a face with a name!

Step 2 – Request for Transcripts

We ask that you include the last two years of grade reports, translated into English, including any testing results with your application.

Step 3 – Birth Certificate, Immunization Records, and Medical Document
We must have a copy of the student’s birth certificate and immunization records, translated into English. All of the required medical documents must be submitted to the school before the student can attend classes. All students are required to have a physical exam with a Virginia physician before their first day.

Step 4 – Confidential Financial Statement
In order for Brunswick Academy to prepare to issue an I-20 form, United States Immigration and Naturalization Services require that all parents of applicants submit proof of their ability to support their child’s studies. This documentation is usually required when applying for an F-1 Visa in which case you may submit a copy of the F-1 application instead of the Confidential Financial Statement. A $2,000.00 deposit is required before the process for the I-20 can begin.

Step 5 – Schedule an Admission Interview
Once you have submitted your forms to the Admission Office we will schedule an interview. Admission interviews generally take about 20 minutes and are an informal, “get-to-know-you” time in which we will also look for English proficiency. This process will take place with a Skype interview.

Step 6 – Brunswick Academy issues an I-20 once the student has been accepted, has decided to enroll, and the deposit has been received.

Step 7 – F-1 Visa Transfer for Students Already in the U.S.
If you are transferring from another school in the U.S. and already have a F-1 Visa, please sign the top portion of the International Student Transfer Form and submit it with your application.
